An interview with Bob Radstake
When Bob Radstake returned from a trip to Australia he realized how much he missed seeing nature within urban areas. As he states, "I was walking along the street when the idea just fell into my head to utilize plants and trees to create structures on which to sit, to fence in your yard or even to grow your own home and more."
Enthralled and excited upon seeing an image on Facebook of a fence that Radstake had planted I decided to contact him. This interview is the result.
